Please see the full events listing for upcoming events.
The Berklee Global Jazz Institute (BGJI) presents II Performance Therapy Symposium. This all-day event features several panels and open discussions curated by Patricia Zarate Pérez, executive director of the Panama Jazz Festival, and Danilo Pérez, BGJI artistic director.
Based on the pair's social work with jazz music and music therapy in Latin America over the past two decades, the Performance Therapy Symposium is an interconnective learning experience that looks at the art and science of music from all points of view. Scientists, artists, academics, and leaders discuss different topics about the creative process in music, science, life, and the different ways we can expand knowledge to achieve world harmony.
